Building Capacity to Use Research Evidence (BCURE) Evaluation: Stage 1 Synthesis Report

This report presents a synthesis of the results from Stage 1 of the evaluation of DFID’s Building Capacity to Use Research Evidence (BCURE) programme. The synthesis report explores findings about how and why capacity building for evidence use works and does not work, for whom, to what extent, in what respects, and in what circumstances.

The BCURE programmes run from 2013–2017, and the evaluation runs in parallel. Stage 1 was conducted from April–September 2015 and is the first of three stages of an evaluation process being conducted by Itad from 2014–2017.
